Hosting Thanksgiving dinner is HARD. I’ve only hosted the meal twice but I know from that experience that its not easy to put a 20 lb bird and 15 different sides on the dinner table at once. Since moving back to Colorado I’ve been lucky enough to not need to host the family gathering.
When you are attending as a guest, the pressure is off, and aside from bringing a side dish or dessert it’s likely not much is expected of you other than your attendance. When that is the case, it’s nice to bring a hostess gift that they will really enjoy after wrapping up all the dishes and mess from the day.
When I’m looking for the perfect hostess gift, I love the variety of options I can find at Hickory Farms. With so many gift solutions to choose from, I can really select a product that is tailored to the personality of the family member who’s taken on the biggest task of the day. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite gifts below, and outlined who I think they are perfect for!
Gifts for Thanksgiving Hosts
For the Wine Lover
When the day is all wrapped up and there’s a pile of dishes in the sink there is absolutely nothing better than a glass of wine and a light snack. The Red Ribbon Treat Gift Set has everything you need to show how much you appreciated the work your host put into the day.
With a bottle of Hahn Pino Noir, Signature Beef Summer Sausage and two varieties of cheese with crackers, it is the perfect for anyone who needs to relax and enjoy the end of the day or can be enjoyed during the celebration by everyone in attendance. This full set has everything needed to provide a complimentary appetizer if the table calls for it, and the host can hang onto the wine for later that evening.
For the Football Fan
Football and turkey go together like apples and pie. If you have a crowd that loves to watch the game before dinner, the Grand Nut Party Assortment is just the gift for your hostess. This holiday snack set will be a group favorite in no time.
Featuring roasted sea salt mixed nuts, pistachios, cashews and cranberry sesame nut mix, there is something for the entire family inside the tin. This set is ideal for opening during the game as a light snack before the meal is served.
For Humble Host
Everyone knows that person who takes on family gatherings without looking for anything in return. Just having family in their home is enough of a reward. This type of hostess needs a gift that they can keep to themselves, and don’t need to share.
Pick up a package of Milk Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels and tell your host to put them on their bedside table instead of out in the family room. These caramels are simply too divine to share – and she shouldn’t have to after slaving away in the kitchen!
No matter what gifts you bring to the table, the message of Thanksgiving is togetherness and giving thanks for the year we’re enjoyed together. Thank you for joining along with me as I’ve written over the last year and I hope you enjoy reading Rocky Mountain Bliss as much as I enjoy writing it.
